A stunning 99 percent of online political contributions made by Twitter workers in 2021 went to Democrats, as per Federal Election Commission information.
Twitter laborers made 561 commitments through Actblue, the Democratic Party-connected payments processor, versus only eight through its Republican counterpart, WinRed.
“The one percent shocks. They have somebody who actually gave to the GOP. I’m stunned,” cracked Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center, the non-profit conservative watchdog.
The 561 commitments made through Actblue in 2021 added up to $14,848.98.
“Their day to day actions also contribute to that political party,” Gainor said of Twitter staffers, who have been accused of censoring conservative commentary. “There was a time when you could give to one political party and still be fairhanded, but that time is long past.”
Outside web-based gifts made through Actblue, a few Twitter leaders composed huge individual checks, the information show.
Twitter CFO Ned Segal gave the lawful most extreme — $5,800 — to Rep. Conor Lamb (D-Pa.).
Executive Seksom Suriyapa gave $5,800 to Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), records show
Staff attorney Evan Stern gave $2,900 to Sen. Mark Kelley (D-Az.) and Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), in addition to $2,900 to Dem John Fetterman, who is running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, as per the data.
The largest donation to a Republican: $250, went to against Trump Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) from previous money VP Rich Sullivan.
